    Editor-in-Chief of Ukrainian Vogue showed what was left behind the scenes by Annie Leibovitz when shooting the Zelenskys

    Like a real pro, Annie worked quickly, accurately and most effectively used not only her time, but also took into account the busyness of the shooting subjects.

    72-year-old American photographer Annie Leibovitz, who captured the most famous people on the planet, recently visited Kyiv, where she filmed the presidential couple: Vladimir and Elena Zelensky for American Vogue. While the Ukrainians are discussing the published footage, Vogue UA editor-in-chief Philip Vlasov told how the shooting went and showed the backstage.

    According to him, when the idea to invite Leibovitz to Kyiv came up, at first it seemed super complicated.

    “Dozens of chains in the mail, nightly negotiations with the teams of Annie Leibovitz and American Vogue, personal correspondence with Anna Wintour, without whose support this a project that seemed too ambitious would not have taken place. Leibovitz's photos will go down in history, and we are proud of our contribution to this extremely important project,” he stressed.

    To get to Ukraine, Annie has overcome a very long way. At first it was a long flight from New York to Warsaw, then a train journey to Kyiv.

    Arriving in the Ukrainian capital, the American immediately showed that she was a professional in her field. Soon after her arrival, Leibovitz, along with her assistants, went to inspect the locations, checking the equipment along the way and analyzing a lot of other points. At the same time, Leibovitz was serious and preoccupied, but there was no fear on her face when she saw the consequences of what the Russian invaders had done. In conversations, Annie noted more than once that she admires Ukrainians and their courage.

    Everyone who was lucky enough to communicate with the legend of photography notes her sociability, emotionality, sense of humor and sharp mind, thanks to which she immediately makes a positive impression and wins over with her humanity and professionalism.

    At 72, Leibovitz continues to improve and tries to do everything as best as possible.

    “Annie really needed to make a photograph of the souls and personalities of Elena Vladimirovna and Vladimir Alexandrovich, therefore their portraits will remain timeless. Every detail is expressive in her photographs. It was incredible to watch how a legend, a professional with such experience, gets excited before shooting, as if for the first time. She treated this work so frankly and responsibly,” said stylist Julia Pelipas.

    Before shooting, Annie talked with the first lady, and the women very quickly found common ground. During the work, Leibovitz tried to make the most of her time, taking pictures quickly and clearly and being pleased with the result.
